Play that tune: Charnock Richard Brass Band at the Croston Christmas Fair

Play that tune: Charnock Richard Brass Band at the Croston Christmas Fair

Thousands of people enjoyed the attractions of Croston’s popular Christmas fair.

It featured a land train to Santa’s grotto, plus a street magician, brass bands, singers, morris dancers, circus performers, a ukelele band and much more.

Children were thrilled to see the donkeys and magic show, while parents shopped for last minute gifts at the many craft stalls. Food and drink was provided by stallholders and local pubs.

Most events took place on the village green, with some in the primary school, old school and community centre.

The event ended with a torchlight procession from the village green.

Brenda Hopper, secretary of the Croston village festivities group, said: “We think it was a great success. We would have said thousands rather than hundreds turned up.

“It’s been going for seven years, but grown in that time. It started with a marquee on the village green.”
